I promise this isn't going to instantly become a blog just about babies. I still like other things, you know, but babies just seem so exciting at the moment!
As I previously mentioned, we'll be finding out what variety the baby is. Having said that, I tend to like light green as a colour no matter what sex the baby will be. It's fairly gender neutral and nice and Springtime-esque, perfect for our little Spring baby.
Here are a few of the green things I have seen that I like so far:
The Bloom Alma crib:
I love it's Granny Smith apple green colour and the fact it's nice and compact. It will be good for the corner of our bedroom as it's small and the lockable casters mean I can move it around the house, keeping the baby with me or Mr K as needed. Once we are done with it, it folds down nicely for storage. The only downside seems to be the weight - 23kg for the world's tiniest cot! This requires further investigation I think. Urban Baby is a good Australian stockist for this crib. More information is available on the Bloom website.
The Ektorp Armchair from Ikea:
So many of my friends have mentioned the need to invest in a comfortable chair for breastfeeding. This one looks both comfy and practical, with the cover being removable and washable/dry cleanable in the case of any baby related incidents. It's also reasonably well priced at $499 with additional covers available for purchase. More information available at Ikea. And bonus - you can buy a matching footstool!
The Bugaboo Cameleon in limited edition green:
Buying a pram that has a bit of character that isn't the same as anyone else's pram is difficult, particularly when you decide to buy one of the most popular prams on the market. But as luck would have it, Bugaboo have recently released two new colours: light green and deep purple. Both are fabulous but with my green fixation I am obviously gravitating towards the green. The limited edition Cameleons are available in Australia at Minimee.
Fun decals for the nursery:
There are so many great decals availble on my favourite online store Etsy. This is just one - from the aptly named Kinky Wall Studio. Given we'll be renting when the baby is born, painting the nursery green will be impractical, but a fun and bright decal will liven up the room quite nicely without being permanent. There are loads that I like but this one with it's animals and trees is lots of fun!
Did you have a theme or favourite colour when your little one was born? Or do you have a vision of what your nursery might look like when you have a baby? Or do you already have a favourite colour that you like to wear or decorate with?
